    My Tascam 246 Cassette Recorder runs fine in Fast Fwd and Rev. but will not play. Capstan moves into position reel tries to move but Capstan drops back.
    Any ideas??

    Yes, The Capstan belt probably needs changing and the cam system worked on. All the old grease in these old units is hardening combined with lose belts and then you have this condition.
